Dr. Hu's next monthly Qigong workshop in Kensington will be on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017 in Kensington, CA (next to Berkeley). The topic of this workshop is: "Leg Movement and Its Related Meridians".
We all know that "whole body movements" involve both arm movements and leg movements. But in our last workshop, we only emphasized the importance of training our arm movements. Why? It is because Wild Goose Qigong skillfully uses the "walking Qigong form" to naturally move our legs forward or backward.
Frome the archives: Dr. Hu demonstrates Wild Goose Spiral & Tripod Qigong (Wild Goose IV) on the beach in Santa Cruz in June 2001.
VHX.TV is a new streaming service from Vimeo that offers the Wild Goose Qigong training videos.

What is "Tong" in Qigong?
April 8, 2017 in Kensington, CA (next to Berkeley)
Dr. Hu's coming one-day Qigong workshop in Kensington wiill be on Saturday, April, 8. The topic of this workshop Is "What is 'Tong' in Qigong"?...
"Tong" is a Chinese character, which means "through" or "un-blocked". When it is used in Qigong practice, it usually describes how someone's body is in an un-blocked state. Or, to be more specific, the word "tong" describes that the Qi-flow in one's meridian lines is flowing smoothly and continuously inside one's body.
Why do we prefer to use the Chinese word "tong" instead of saying someone's Qi "is flowing in the right direction"? It is because the vibration of the sound "tong" is considered is be conducive to the vibration of the Qi-flow. Therefore, technically speaking, we use the word "tong" as a "mantra" to help improve the free flowing of our Qi and blood in our body. Just as we all know that in Wild Goose Qigong there is a basic mantra of "gong-cheng", which is for helping you to practice "micro-cosmic Orbit" (MCO). Now in this workshop, we are going to teach you how to use another mantra "tong", which is for helping you move your Qi in your specific meridian more freely.
Many Wild Goose lovers still have the wrong concept that "it is easy to learn the Wild Goose movements, but it is hard to feel the flowing of your own Qi inside your body." Personally, I do not agree with this statement. I believe that if you can do your Wild Goose Qigong movements correctly, you will naturally be able move your Qi inside your body correctly. A good example is the movement-induced MCO".
In this workshop, we will teach you how to add the mantra "tong" to the movements selected from Wild Goose Qigong -1,2,3 & 4, in order to open up your related meridians. In this way, I hope it will be easier for you to be able to feel the direction of your Qi-flow.

Bird migration has begun. "We are fortunate to live in the flight path of migrating snow geese," writes Laurie Muench Wanner in sharing this spectacular sight f...rom Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. "This blizzard of birds shows what it looks like when most of a flock take off at the same time." About 100,000 northbound snow geese pass through the area each February and March on their way to breeding grounds on the Arctic tundra. During stopovers they often feed on the stubble in grain fields to fuel up for the rest of the journey. Many thanks to Laurie and also to Dave Brooke and Carol Lee Elliott for sharing their snow-geese photos from Pennsylvania.

Oppositional Pairs vs. 3-Beat Rhythm
Nov 19, 2016 in Kensington, CA (next to Berkeley)
Also coming up: BONE MARROW WASHING
Nov 26-27, 2016 in Soquel, CA (next to Santa Cruz)
Dr. Hu's coming monthly Qigong workshop in Kensington is on Nov. 19, Saturday. The topic of this workshop is "Oppositional Pairs vs. 3-Beat Rhythm".
As you may know, Wild Goose Qigong, in many places, uses a mixture of both 2-beat and 3-beat rhythm. The 2-beat rhythm, or "oppositional pairs" of movements, is mostly for balancing, while 3-beat rhythm, is basically for dynamics.
During this workshop, we will first use Wild Goose-1, or the "First 64 Movements" as an example to demonstrate and practice how this Qigong starts with the very balanced oppositional pairs of movements, and then gradually develops into the more dynamic 3-beat rhythm type of movements.
Also, during this workshop, we are going to analyze why we often come across 3-beat rhythm in Wild Goose movements. Some of the reasons include:
Wild Goose Qigong has more circular movements than linear movements, and circular movements fit more into the 3-beat rhythm
Ex.1. "Windmills" (selected from WG-8)
Ex.2. "Wild Goose is Playing" (selected from WG-2 and 8)
Circular movements also include "figure 8" movements and spiral movements. These movements all naturally fit well into the 3-beat rhythm.
Ex.3. "Circular and Figure 8 Movements" walking Qigong.
Ex.4. "Spiraling Movements (No. 22 and 23, WG-4)
Even in some center-peripheral movements, if we use 3-beat rhythm appropriately, it can add some delightfulness to our stretching
Ex. 5. "Dragon Steps" (selected from "Creating Flexibility" DVD)
Last but not least, let's conclude this workshop by practicing together Wild Goose-5, a short set well-known for its lively and continuous use of 3-beat rhythm. Prepared to be mesmerized by the enchanting rhythm; lifted by the high spirit of the innocent and care-free Wild Goose; and dance together to your heart's content.
Everyone who is interested in the lovely Wild Goose movements is welcome to attend this workshop. No pre-requisite is required.
